Caleb Landry Jones doesn’t like shooting big budget movies.
The 32-year-old actor starred as Banshee in 2011’s ‘X-Men: First Class’ – but Caleb actually prefers to work on smaller projects.
Reflecting on his career choices, he shared: “It wasn’t necessarily deliberate. Maybe I didn’t work as well in that system, I don’t know.
“But I’ve found great comfort in working in movies that aren’t that size. In a way, you get a little bit more because of those limitations. Working through the issues in a way that hopefully -the, is unique to the piece.”
Caleb also admits that he never really felt comfortable performing in front of an audience.
He told The Guardian newspaper: “These lessons forced you to get on stage: either you don’t do it or you do it. And if you do, you do your best. Sometimes you yell at each other afterwards because that it didn’t.” it didn’t go as well as the rehearsal, or it didn’t feel as good as you’d like it to be in your head.”
Caleb – whose other film credits include ‘Get Out’ and ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ – admits acting has helped him deal with his inner feelings.
When asked if it served as a “kind of addiction”, Caleb explained: “It was kind of when I started doing it. Because it was the only place where you were allowed to scream. or to cry. A space where I could have feelings that I was repressing. Then, the more I did it, the more it started to become something else too. More on a job.
“About acting and what it means to me to take on a character.”
